Green Beans, an American Favorite

Green beans have always seemed to be an American favorite. If we are not growing them in our garden, we seem to be experimenting with different flavors to please our taste buds.

My husband and I are vegetarians. So different flavors and unique variety are important to us.

A delightful change of pace

When I first started to create this dish, I had no idea how it would turn out. I just knew I needed to try different things to help my husband and I interested in eating vegetarian. When you grew up eating meat, vegetarian eating can appear bland, unless you use your imagination and are willing to try and create different things, to please and re-educate you last bud.

We were so surprised that this dish took the green beans we grew in our garden and made it something we smiled about and knew we would make again.

Bon a petite!
